    CUBA looks awful scary to me! The USA/Cuba story is still so new/unpredictable. Checked out the rest - don't see anything fit's my style except HPQ. Added HPQ back to my watch list. Think that is worth trading. thx, kg.

    Buyback, institutions, availability

    Dgroves,

    Question: this may seem stupid but I'm trying to understand this better. If 180M shares are already owned out of the 205M outstanding right now, then how is VG buying back 100M out of what's left of the total 205M outstanding? What am I missing here?

    Is anyone trading ONNN?

    At a $10 sp ONNN can be a good trader. Looking at ONNNs 1 Yr chart shows it's at it's 1 Yr high now. Not much room to grow. However, the recent stock buyback and end of year season / rally may still be giving it room to grow a bit. ONNN is a solid co with high institutional ownership.

    Yes, I think I see what you mean. Yahoo's Insider Transaction screen is difficult to interpret correctly and there Yahoo doesn't take tech calls. The Net Share Purchase Activity table showing "0 Trans" last 6 months doesn't make any sense to me. The Transactions Reported table: In the past month it would appear most of the entries are either "automatic" or "Option Exercise". The last insider "acquisition was Dec 1st.

    I'm not accustomed to using this Yahoo screen. Will have to compare this with other stocks I own to see if I can clear my "fog" on this. Thx for bringing to my attn though. kg

    Where/what site are you looking at to see insider selling Vs buying? I've been trying to trade it but interrupted by the oil sell off/scare...

    fabricone1,

    Please tell me more about "Einhorn invovement. Aggressive buy back". The only recent news release that may be related to this is the Dec 2nd "Einhorn invovement. Aggressive buy back". But I'm not seeing anything about Einhorn or when this "buyback" is taking place. Without some dates on the buyback it's difficult to see when this has/will move ONNN's SP.

    And if you now look at the monthly chart, VG's been going up rapidly since Dec 10th. Perhaps totally because of the acquisition and buyback announcements... SP now at 3.68 with the Santa rally still in front of us... Go VG. kg

    You and I are on the same page. Time to exit with a descent profit after holding quite a long time. Both looking at other growth trader stocks with better/safer prospects in 2015. the MU quick growth story is behind us. Perhaps, still great for buy n hold forever but not so compelling anymore to not shop around. Good luck cheetah next couple weeks. Got a feeling we may still be holding this position until right after Q4 ER - only 3 wks off now.

    Since us little retail MU investors don't make a difference to sp much either way, I'll agree with sam-paloc's point that our MU darling of 2013-early 2014 stopped being a darling as a quick growth stock. Last 6 months has been terrible compared to previous year, moving so slow, starting to look like more of a dividend stock yet not paying the dividend. I do think MU is still a good place to be/remain for the VERY VERY long term hold (as 97% institutional held suggests). But if you're looking for short to mid term growth stories, I would be placing my money on other stocks (RFMD, YHOO, SWKS, maybe even F, etc). Oh yes, MU does still have quick buck trading potential but how do you do that successfully given MU's consistent caught off guard Lucy behavior!?

    Just this morning my ONNN and Yahoo have come back nicely. Now if we could just get MU back up in the 36's moving to 37 where it was...

    MU not looking good

    I do think MU VERY VERY long term is still a good place to be however, I've grown more n more into cheetah's frustrations on MU past 6 months. Been like watching paint dry with lots of Lucy frustrations. For those of us that have waited this out and now trying to follow our exit strategy without giving up gains during the Xmas rally of the trading year and going into Q4 ER - pretty frustrating!

    Thx cheetah. Been preoccupied this week. Re my MU, only if gets to 37, at least where it was at 36.50.

    Guess my end of year plan fizzled and I'll just have to hold until after January ER. I'm not going to dump at 33 - 34 after holding this long.

    Do the math. In just 7 trading days, since the Dec 5th high of 36.50 to today's low of $32.37, MU has dropped 10%! Gee, I guess that means when the market corrects, MU will go back up 10% in 7 days! Yep, right, har, har. Figin Lucy! Let me off this boat. kg

    Clear this up a little bit. I trade and hold stuff. MU I've held for a long time but have planned my exit strategy for the end of the year to ride the (usual/typical) rally. I'm not whining about the rally not working out. I'm whining about MU's Lucy factor for the past 9 months and Friday's 3.78% drop last Friday - higher than all semis and/or stocks in general. Lucy always does this to MU.

    So, astrog8tr - what is your exit strategy for MU? By when do you want/need to be out of this stock? Don't say never or forever. Some day will come and you'll want to exit and this will happen to you right when you're planning to get out and you'll be saying what the heck....
